Sunday brings us the Madrid Derby and with both sides battling it out for points at the top of La Liga, this should be an encounter of some epic sh*thousery.
Atlético lead the way in La Liga, five points clear of Barca and their Madrid rivals Real, with a game in hand on both.
Neither Simeone nor Zidane will be wanting to lose this one, and a cagey, tactical affair looks likely.
Read on to see our fancies for the match, including a juicy little 11/2 shout.

Our Top Odds Pick – Under 2.5 goals – 7/10 at VBET
The last meeting between this pair at the Wanda Metropolitano ended in a 0-0 draw and we’re expecting another low scoring contest on Sunday, since defeat for either team would put a big dent in their title prospects.
Atlético have only conceded 16 league goals so far this season and Real have faired almost as well, leaking just the 20 – showing how difficult both sides are to break down.
Under 2.5 goals has landed in the last four matches involving Atlético and in the last four involving Real – it looks a strong bet to be yet another low scoring contest on Sunday.
Our Long Shot – 1-1 Correct Score – 11/2 at BetVictor
Goal scoring chances are likely to be at a minimum in this one but Atlético have only managed to register just one clean sheet in their last eight matches.
Real drew 1-1 with Sociedad on Monday and as we’re expecting a tight match here, we’re happy to chuck a couple of quid on the 1-1 scoreline landing again.
